Back in the 1970s when the other main manufacturers were Hinchliffe and Minifigs I remember that according to warped wargamer logic - because they were significantly cheaper (14p each as against 17p for the others) that Garrison were seen as slightly inferior - crazy. Whatever your own recollections are, I can assure you that if these samples are anything to go by Garrison ought to be taken very seriously indeed. I believe that Rob has recut the moulds and he is clearly using a high quality metal which makes these very crisp figures indeed.
Scythian bowman from the Rose Prestige range. Spot on at 25mm tall.
|Romans from the Garrison 20mm range. At 23mm tall these are highly compatible with many of the modern plastic figures.|
25mm Gladiator - again these chaps are bang on 25mm.
|Norman archer (complete with accurate haircut!) and Saxon Fyrd. 25mm again.|
Prussian 25mm from the Seven Years War range. Probably somewhat beyond my painting ability!
|Rose 20mm French Napoleonic cannon.|
